Links or stories from The S*n & Other Unacceptable Sources
« on: July 11, 2010, 08:41:33 am »
Could we please re-iterate YET AGAIN.

We request all members of this site to desist from posting stories that have originated from either of those two rags. If people persist in posting links or stories originating from those rags, your stay at RAWK towers will be very short indeed.

The rest of the members and moderators are busy enough as it is without these links or stories appearing. We have more pressing matters at hand than having to read what Bascombe has made up.

Thanks.

This is related to the two rags as stated, both boycotted by loads.

The Mail is just rubbish fullstop.

@ Yossi-thread - there is a story about it on Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2010/jul/11/rafa-benitez-yossi-benayoun-liverpool

Is it possible to re-open it with a different source? It's very relevant even though it's against the common opinion on this forum.

Have you read the Guardian story?

It's not relevant to anything. An ex-player talking about an ex-manager from a banned source.

I can get through the day without it. Topics I give a fuck about:

The owners
The players
The ground
The World Cup
SoS
etc...


Things I couldn't give a flying fuck about:

Yossi moaning to Chris Bascombe.

Any Bascbombe / NOTW / S*n acolytes that just HAVE to have a say on their stories can use the "Your Comments" feature on their websites

Don't post their shite on here. It's not difficult to understand why they are blacklisted.

It's not hard to understand with what it says in the story.

If people (not having a go at you) want to post things attributed to The S*n or NOTW i will invite them out for a drink to discuss...i'm sure loads of people in Liverpool would love to know the reasons why they are reading or qouting said rags.

Bascombe is a fucking disgrace.

I have never read an issue of either, but these news are all over the place - it's about the third biggest sports story in today's news after the final and the tour. That fact alone makes it relevant for at least the General Football forum. Principles and rules can be good, but only as long as they don't conflict with common sense. I realize that I can go to about every other Liverpool-forum to discuss this matter, but we all know that RAWK isn't just another Liverpool-forum, and that the discussions are generally better on this forum than on any other football-forums. That fact wont be compromised by discussing an article that has been written in (according to Google News) 129 newspapers in UK alone.

How is this not censorship in the same sense as LFC.TV, who (surprisingly) hasn't published the story either?

Why do you want to talk about it so much?

its a shit story anyway!

and any player, current or ex talking to one of those rags doesn't deserve discussing, they show no respect at all by even opening their mouth to either of those pieces of shit.

If you don't know the answer to that then you need to find another site mate.  Fucks sake. 

We will not have anything sourced from those papers sully this forum, if you have a problem with that there are any number of other places on the web that you can go to discuss the stories that they carry.  Simple as that really.  The rules are clear and they aren't going to change anytime soon.

No disrespect, but how can you justify having Bill Shankly's socialism quote in your signature and still not wanting to go into further discussion about why this forum has censorship, or even explain why it is so? Do you think it is the Liverpool way to censor and then declare "my way or the highway", without elaborating why it has to be your way? Shankly's socialism is in simple terms really just democracy in the advanced form, and whether you claim that the reason for the censorship is that he told his story to the wrong newspaper, or if it's against the forum's (and my own) opinion on Rafa, it is censorship. And I don't think Shankly's socialism would have had anything to do with it.

And one of the reasons discussions on RAWK are so much better is because debates about provocative and unsubstantiated shite sourced from the liars at Murdochs rags is just not allowed.
I see you are in Denmark. Do you not realise they have previous form and are anathema to most people from Liverpool?

I realize that I can go to about every other Liverpool-forum to discuss this matter
If you feel it's that burning an issue that you want to talk to someone about it, that's your choice, but not here on RAWK, so over to you.

Of course I know about Liverpool's opinion on Rupert Murdoch. I respect it, and I have never visited any of their websites or read any of their issues. However, the article is published in 129 online UK newspapers, and I think it is possible to discuss the content and leaving the NOTW-element out of it.

Damn - I was going to get his address and call in on the way through Denmark in 2 weeks' time and hand him personally a copy of HFD and also go into the finer points of how and why RAWK isn't a fucking democracy - posting here is a privilege not a 'right' and there are reasons for that. When it comes to those newspapers, it's a no-brainer.

Whilst I understand your frustration, is that not a little harsh?

As you say he's a 19 year old kid from Denmark. Didn't we all say stupid things when you were 19? Didn't we all think we know better than everyone else?

I think under the circumstances a week's ban and a little bit of homework would have been sufficient to be honest but thats just my opinion. maybe I'm going soft in my old age!!

 would just like to say that i am new onto this site, ive been a red for as long as i can remember, im  a season ticket holder in the main stand, and to be honest the attitude of some people to reading the s*n or notw is exactly the same as that of all the day tripper fans who sit in front of me at every home game, they dont know our history, our club or our city, if they did ,they wouldn't, on match days, sit in all the city centre pubs, restaurants or hotels with a copy under their arm as if its the norm, as where they come from in white van man land!
its not a difficult argument, DONT READ THE S*N or any press release associated with that rag. no censorship , no politics no bullshit. just 96 good reasons. and if that needs explaining or discussed then go and find another club!!

as SMD said it was the response that got him a ban not the original ignorance. He was offered the chance to educate himself but chose to be an arrogant little cock instead:

Question,

using the same logic to ban stories from either the Sun or News of the World..

can we not permanently ban stories from sources that have used either or both of the above sources?

Why don't we permanently ban the use of any stories from the Guardian or the BBC then seeing as they have reported stuff from The Sun or News of the World, and are in fact when doing so, endorsing those news outlets?

.....

It's not the same logic.

The reason for the ban on those two rags is pretty self evident and really should need absolutely no explanation to any Liverpool supporter or Scouser, or require a particularly pursuasive argument or debate as to why. The evidence is clear and unambiguous and still hurts to this day for so many.

Now on the very rare case where an unnattributed story that was originated by those two rags is then reported on in other papers like the Guardian or say the BBC, as the qualities almost always publish their sources if you care to read their articles, it's a no brainer, so posters shouldn't waste the Mods time in the first place or get people like myself angry. It's not exactly difficult, just simply review the post before submitting and check the source and if in any doubt just don't submit or PM a Mod first.

And there's no prizes on here anyway for being the first with the news.

On the logic side, by and large the BBC and the broadsheets don't have either a particular axe to grind against Merseyside or it's people and have rarely deliberately made up shite stories to try and attract attention from the people either, unlike those two rags. (It could be argued though that stories from the Daily Fail increasingly fall into these categories and should be banned and I would support that.)

But do you realise that everytime someone clicks on a link to those rags, even if inadvertently, that click increases their circulation figure count and thus increases their advertising revenue and thus the profit to Murdoch to carry on spreading his insidious lies and continue purveying fiction as fact?

The Scum newspaper.....what a bunch of total and utter c*nts
They're just given me another reason to detest them (as if I dont enough already)
They ran a competition and the prize was a trip to Derry - my hometown
And in the small print it said that Derry is a dangerous city and that you go there at your own risk and basically take your life in your hands
This is Derry which has just been confirmed as the first UK city of culture
I'm sorry, I know this isnt football related but I'm no pissed off at this.
Derry is suffering bad - like anywhere - in the current climate and winning the city of culture has really lifted confidence and given people hope for investment, jobs etc etc etc - what the fuck are this scumbag of a paper printing stuff like this for
I'm gonna make sure this gets picked up by the local press and that they encourage people to stay away from this glorified toilet roll
